Cleveland Browns vs. Minnesota Vikings: Top Anytime TD Scorer Bets
The Minnesota Vikings started the season with two road games that didn’t exactly work out as they expected. They took an overtime loss and a one-point loss but eventually put together a solid performance last week against the Seattle Seahawks at home.
Minnesota is home for the second straight week and will look to turn to home field advantage for their game against the Browns. However, it’s not going to be easy with the Browns 2-1 on the season. Cleveland lost to the Chiefs, 33-29, to begin the season, but bounced back with two double-digit wins against the Texans and Bears. Neither of these wins was surprising, but the Browns got the job done in those games, and that’s all you can ask for.
The Browns defense has been lights out, especially with their pass rush but the Vikings defense has been abysmal in every direction.
Here are some potential looks for anytime touchdown scorers for this game between the Browns and Vikings.
Browns vs. Vikings Top Anytime TD Scorer Bets
Nick Chubb (-188)
Through three games, Nick Chubb is averaging a touchdown per game with 262 yards rushing on 48 carries. The Vikings, on the other hand, have looked dreadful at stopping the run, giving up 119.3 yards per game this season. This season, the Browns offensive line has looked fantastic in the run game and Cleveland should have all the opportunity in the world to score points in this one against a terrible Vikings defense. I like Chubb to go off for a long touchdown but he might be able to get that one-yard touchdown too.
Odell Beckham Jr. (+130)
The Browns really haven’t been getting their receivers involved through the first three games. Odell Beckham Jr. was out earlier this season and now Jarvis Landry is out in the middle of the season. In just one game, Beckham had nine targets with five catches and 77 yards, averaging 15.4 yards per catch. With that many targets and a secondary that has looked horrible for the Vikings, I like Odell Beckham Jr. to find the back of the endzone. Around the red zone, the Browns have to look for Beckham. They’ve got to utilize him in these types of situations. It’s why they added him to the roster in the first place. He looks healthy and should be a superstar for the Browns.
Justin Jefferson (-105)
If the Vikings are going to be trailing in this game thanks to a putrid defense, the offense is going to be slinging the ball around with Kirk Cousins. Justin Jefferson should be the main target in the second half with the Vikings trailing. He's caught 20 balls for 254 yards along with two touchdowns. He leads the team in receiving and has been really the main producer for the offense since he came into the league. With Dalvin Cook's status in doubt for the second straight week, the Vikings might need to put the ball in the hands of their biggest playmakers. That’s Justin Jefferson. He’ll have plenty of chances to score in the endzone as the Browns secondary hasn’t been all that to start the season either.
